tv   Hannity  FOX News  October 28, 2013 10:00pm-11:01pm PDT

10:00 pm
it's hard to say that. asterisk. it's hard to spit it out. he never would have said that. there could have been qualifiers. no? the document we have been talking about is posted on our facebook page. kelly file. we'll have a link on twitter as well. follow me @megyn kelly. here's "hannity." i heard on the news about fast and furious. >> could president obama really be this out of touch? >> i certainly didn't know anything about the irgs g report. >> millions of americans are visiting health >> hollywood liberals are turning on team obama care. >> unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time. >> remember, you were warned. >> earlier today the president sealed the deal on health care signing the bill into law and forever changing the united states of america. >> we look back at some of our most chilling obama care predictions. "hannity" starts right here,
10:01 pm
right now. >> welcome to "hannity." surprise, surprise, obama care still isn't working correctly. excuses other the effects of the law and all the obama care lies. in a minute we'll check in with rudy giuliani here in studio to react to this. first let's remind viewers about the biggest tall tale of them all when it comes to the train wreck. look at this. >> under the proposal if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. if you have health insurance, we'll make sure it is more affordable, more secure. if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. >> you can keep your health insurance. keep your choice of doctor, keep
10:02 pm
your plan. >> if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. period. >> unfortunately the americans are finding out the hard way that the president is not being honest. every day we are reading new reports about how hundreds of thousand or so millions of people are losing coverage thanks to obama care. according to new the changes will impact more than 800,000 people in new jersey who purchase insurance on the individual and small employer markets. florida blue for example is terminating about 300,000 policies. half of the individual businesses in the state. insurer highmark in pittsburgh are dropping about 20% of the individual market customers while independence blue cross which is the major insure you philadelphia is dropping about 45%. these numbers are frightening. the white house just admitted it is true. you can't keep your plan if you like your plan. finally. >> not everybody will keep their
10:03 pm
plan. they will wind up with better insurance in the long run. they may be healthier but the president sold it as if you have a plan, you will get to keep it. that's not true. >> it's correct. i take your point. the it is correct that substandard plans that don't provide minimum services that have a lot of fine print that leaves consumers in the lurch often because of annual caps or lifetime caps or, you know, carve outs for pre-existing conditions are no longer allowed. the affordable care act is built on the premise that health care is not a privilege, it's a right. there should be minimum standards for the plans available to americans across the country. >> what happened to if you like your plan, you can keep your plan? one lawmaker is taking action. wisconsin senator ron johnson is going to file legislation this week. it's entitled, quote, if you
10:04 pm
like your health care, you can keep it, act, and would make them live up to the promise. joining us, rudy giuliani. there is an estimate, health care expert bob lazuski says there are 19 million americans that have individual health insurance market. he says 85% of them, 16 million will lose coverage. >> whoa. i can't tell you if it's 85%, 50% or 30%. it's a big percentage of people that will lose coverage that nobody would lose their coverage. if you liked it, you could keep it. none of the things about minimum standards or the federal government won't tell you what insurance you would have. this is a major problem. the biggest problem of all, even worse than the computer break down which is -- >> mind boggling. >> crazy incompetence. the bigs thing you can see with the statistics are young people aren't signing up for insurance. mostly so far to the extent people are getting through they
10:05 pm
have been signing up for medicaid. >> in new york especially. >> which is just going to add to the expense. >> right. whatever estimates obama made of what obama care will cost, multiply it by two, three. >> let's go through the main promises of the president. the president said the website will be easy to use. i can play it in a minute if you like. he said the average family will say it will reduce premiums $2500 per family per year. he said you can keep your doctor if you like your doctor. keep your policy. keep your plan and the cost would be $900 billion. now it's three times that. >> more than that. every single one of those is wrong. it didn't make sense. you can't cover 20 million, 30, 40 million more people and have it cost less money. it's impossible. >> the cbo says there will be 30
10:06 pm
million uninsured in spite of it. >> this was never a universal health care plan. i don't know what the it was. it was an attempt for obama care to get something through which nobody thought about and we know nobody read it. now it's a disaster. >> i like the idea of what ron johnson is doing here. everyone has heard if you like your plan, keep your plan. he says, okay, pass an act that says if you like your plan you can keep your plan act. i would add if you don't save $2500 a year then president obama ought to give you a refund. those were the promises made. >> promises mean something, right? >> they should. we don't agree. from his point of view this is his biggest achievement. this is the thing for which history will judge barack obama one way or the other. you would think he would have at least gotten the website correct. how hard is that to do it correctly. >> how do you screw up in 2013,
10:07 pm
spend that amount of money on a website. we had a computer expert with his own company on the program that said he would be embarrassed to take a million dollars, it would be up working and there wouldn't be problems. >> i had to face y2k when i was mayor. everybody was afraid the computers would go down. people let out of jails, trains wouldn't run. we spent a couple hundred million to make sure it worked. i started getting briefings on that 16 months before. joe lhota was in charge. >> currently running for mayor. >> i would be briefed once a month. when we got closer, once a week. there were breakdowns but we fixed them six, seven, eight months in advance. i knew if it failed i would look like a fool and it wasn't my signature achievement. reducing crime or welfare was. this was his signature achievement. >> ron fornia got ahold after a democratic senior strategist. the subject line is democratic
10:08 pm
party is -- the f word. when you look at the rate shock, the cost of this, the website failure, people can't keep thein plan, what's the political fallout considering none of what the president promised is true. what's going to happen? >> i believe it will be something like it was in 2010. maybe worse. now we'll see reality of it. the website not working is the least of it. i think they will be worse off when the website starts working. >> and the rate shock. >> when they start signing up people for medicaid. so far two-thirds go to medicaid. less than one-third goes to private insurance. it has to flip for this thing to be at all affordable. even then it's expensive. >> young people want catastrophic insurance that's all they need. >> also if you're a young person, healthy and you go to the doctor three times in ten years, so you get catastrophic insurance and something bad happens, you're taken care of. >> you can still get insurance. >> good to see you.
10:09 pm
>> disaster. coming up, ann coulter, charles krauthammer and a hannity investigation into how the president mismanaged his ownership administration and is quick to claim ignorance when it comes to scandals plaguing the administration. there are few subjects he's been more than eager to discuss. the comparison will shock you. and then an update on the story of earline davis who was fired because she was honest with men on my radio program. we decided to help her find a job. we have good news tonight. tune in tomorrow at 10:00 eastern. a studio audience edition of "hannity" as we have a preview of kathleen sebelius's testimony before congress and more tomorrow at 10:00 eastern. ow at. this is the quicksilver cash back card from capital one. it's not the "juggle a bunch of rotating categories" card. it's not the "sign up for rewards each quarter" card.
10:10 pm
it's the no-games, no-messing-'round, no-earning-limit-having, do-i-look-like-i'm-joking, turbo-boosting, heavyweight-champion- of-the-world cash back card. is is the quicksilver heavyweight-champion- cash back card from capital one. unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere, every damn day. now, tell me, what's in your wallet?
10:11 pm
10:12 pm
10:13 pm
welcome back to "hannity." and how this president manages his administration and how he takes no responsibility for anything that goes welcome back to "hannity." and how this president manages his administration and how he takes no responsibility for anything that goes wrong with it. last night a wall street journal reporter said the president didn't know this country was spying on world leaders including german chancellor angela her kel. the report said president obama went nearly five years without knowing his spies were bugging the phones of world leaders. officials say the nsa has so many eaves droppings under way it wouldn't have been practical to brief him on all of them. the president who has perfected the art of leading from behind is constantly claiming he has no knowledge of what's going on regarding anything that could harm his flawless reputation. to remind the viewers of the many time it is president has
10:14 pm
been kept in the dark regarding scandal and controversy we have a little something to help jog your memory. take a look. >> the president said he was angry about this. do you know when he first knew there was a problem? >> well, i think it became clear fairly early on -- the first couple of days. >> not before october 1. >> no. >> there was no concern at that point from the white house or hhs? >> i think we talked about having testing going forward. >> i can assure you that i certainly didn't know anything about the i.g. report before it was leaked through press -- through the press. >> i first learned about it from the same news reports i think
10:15 pm
most people learned about this. i think it was on friday. >> when did the president find out about the department of justice subpoenas for the associated press? >> yesterday. let me be clear. we don't have independent knowledge of that. he found out about the news reports yesterday on the road. >> there have been problems. i heard on the news about fast and furious. >> he was not aware of what was happening in fast and furious. certainly i was not. >> i was not personally aware of any requests. we have an infrastructure set up to manage requests. >> really? so what does the president know about and what is he eager to discuss publically? when it comes to sports, pop culture and softball topics he knows a lot there. take a look.
10:16 pm
>> happy birthday! >> thank you very much. >> happy birthday. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >>. >> how did you celebrate sunday? >> had a bunch of friends come over who i don't see that often from hoig and college. we played golf and then tried to play a little basketball. >> i just want you to know the heat will be just fine. they're going to be okay. they are playing basketball the right way. the hurricanes had a great season. they deserve a round of applause. [ applause ] >> tonight you have florida and florida gulf coast going at it. >> my ipod has a bunch of
10:17 pm
different stuff. i have a lot of old school r & b. stevie wonder, earth, wind & fire, marvin gaye. but i also have a bunch of contemporary stuff. jay-z, beyonce. you know, naz. you name it, i've got it. i will say right now that if i'm really trying to get my heart rate up that crazy in love is a good song to work out to. >> which kardashian was married only 72 days? >> that would be kim. >> very good! which one of us was on "dancing with the stars"? >> sheri. >> wow. is this willful wliendness or incompetence? with us eric erickson and leslie marshall. i may surprise you in one part of this.
10:18 pm
i think we should be spying on some friends and allies. i don't have a problem with it. the idea that he knew nothing about merkel and other world leaders, knew nothing about it, but it's been going on five years, i don't believe him. what does that tell you. >> one thing you know about poll sigss left or right, our president included, they are careful. he didn't say he didn't know about 35 or these problems. >> wait a minute. hang on. wait, wait, wait. >> he specifically didn't know about merkel. >> he didn't know the health care website had a problem. the irs targeting he read in news reports. fast and furious he read in news reports. knew nothing about doj targeting or benghazi. not me. i don't know anything. noble any of it. >> i will if you give me the time talk about benghazi. >> go. >> the health care site. if we believe the commander in
10:19 pm
chief will sit down whether it was medicare when it went online, whether it is health care when it goes online and he'll be sitting next to the i.t. people and even kathleen sebelius, that's just not realistic. >> really? his signature legislation. let me go to eric. >> he didn't know it was broken until people go on. they didn't know. >> they all know ahead of time. i would think he would want to be briefed on that. if he didn't know merkel was being phone tapped who made the decision to do it. if he didn't make it, who is making the decision? >> we don't know who the buck stops with on anything in the administration from obama care to the nsa to fast and furious. you name it. nothing ever comes back to him. that's fine if that's true.
10:20 pm
who does it go the to -- valerie jared, joe biden, eric holder, who? the administration doesn't seem to know and they won't hold anyone else responsible either. who will get fired over these things. now the democrats on capitol hill want to attack the contractors. what about people who hired the contractors. >> that's a good question eric is asking. if somebody else made the decision to spy on our allies, if nobody told the president that the roll out would be a disaster, if you were in the private sector wouldn't you be fired? >> no question about the latter. when it comes to n srk a, that's different. as you know the president no matter what their party is briefed on several surveillance programs. the problem is -- >> we can spy on chancellor merkel and somebody else makes the decision? >> he was not told that angela merkel's cell phone and
10:21 pm
communications were monerred to president -- >> who would make the decision. >> the head of the nsa. >> you think that's appropriate that they can make a decision to spy on chancellor merkel on their own? >> if you remember when the president became president he had to give up his blackberry. do you know why? >> that's weak. >> many people including our allies would be able to obtain the cell phone, obtain that nfrgs. >> so -- >> we are doing it, this they are doing it. >> i want the to know who is making the decision. >> it's out in the open. >> i don't have a b problem but he needs to take responsibility. >> go ahead. >> he needs to take responsibility. it's his administration, not anybody else's. this is the obama administration. it's his fault. if he didn't know he should be held accountable if he won't hold anyone else accountable. >> he apologized and you got on him for that. >> he gets a lot of news about scandals from us in the news business. i am a commentator, not a news person. we'll leave it to them. coming up next -- >> if our website still isn't loading properly, we are probably just overloaded with traffic. millions of americans are visiting health which is great news. unfortunately the site was only
10:22 pm
designed to handle six users at a time. >> now even hollywood libs are laughing at the disastrous roll out of the health care act. more of that spoof coming up. coming up, earline davis who was on this program after she was fired for taking my call. we have a happy ending to her story. all of that. ann coulter and charles krauthammer all coming up. she loves a lot of the same things you do. it's what you love about her. but your erectile dysfunction - that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms obph,

welcome welcome back. even the president's liberal friends in hollywood can't help but laugh at obama care. "saturday night live" made a rockery of kathleen sebelius for her faulty website. this is funny. take a look. >> kathleen sebelius, secretary of health under president obama. now a lot of folks have been talking about the new health care enrollment website. how it's been crashing and freezing and shutting down and stalling and not working and breaking and sucking. well, tonight i have a number of friendly tips to help you deal with the technical b problems. for example, have you tried restarting your computer? if our website still isn't
10:27 pm
loading properly, we are probably just overloaded with traffic. millions of americans are visiting health which is great news. unfortunately the site was only designed to the handle six users at a time. so if you're in a rush, consider using our low res website. with simpler fonts and graphics. if the site keeps freezing we also have links the to other helpful websites such as where you can purchase airline tickets to canada and buy cheaper prescription drugs. still need guidance? consult health's frequently asked questions for topics like, what the hell? how have i been on the same page for three hours? does obama care cover mental health issues caused by using this website? and our most frequently asked question, who the government? be sure to like us on facebook. look at that. we're already up to three likes.
10:28 pm
and i like that enthusiasm. um, i.t.? can we get someone in here? >> here with reaction to that author of brand new book in bookstores everywhere, never trust a liberal over 3. ann coulter joins us. this president has bipartisan treated with kid gloves by the media. this is so disastrous vep they have to mock it. >> true. but i note once again they are not making fun of obama care. they are making fun of somebody who works for him, the same way they will make fun of joe biden, lois lerner but, no, they can't say anything about the king. he's the one who -- it's his idea. it's obama care. conservatives were screaming bloody murder. the government can't run the food service on amtrak without losing 8 million dollars a year. it's a monopoly. they lose money. they are taking over health care
10:29 pm
affecting every man, woman and child in america? usually with these government disasters it's only one small segment of americans who will be screwed over and not get good services. this is everyone. it's happening the way republicans said it would. they have the audacity to say you're complaining about something that didn't work that you didn't the think would anyway. it's working exactly as we said it would. >> if you like your plan, you can keep it. >> you had a great show thursday night. >> wasn't it good? that's a crock. they profiled two people. one paying $1800 more a year. another person $10,000 more a year. you look at the promises. the website will be easy. we'll put it on screen. the premiums increase $2500 per family on average. keep your doctor, your policy. only $900 billion. it's a crock. people are getting kicked off, paying more.
10:30 pm
what's the impact of this? >> 90% of people will pay through the nose in order to help a very small limited number of americans. look, no americans would have a problem with just cutting those people checks. off bad lottery in life. you have a child with a horrible disease. but the democrats idea is never let a crisis go to waste. you have the small number of people. we'll burn the system down. everyone else will pay more. everyone else's health care will be a disaster. >> the l.a. times points out thousands of californians are discovering that they are getting sticker shock. one democratic strategist said we're screwed. what is the political fallout? >> thankfully, ted cruz has branded the republican party as the anti-obama care party. that's going to help us next year.
10:31 pm
i would recommend if this proceeds as it looks like it is going to where the democrats have to ask for a delay now, exactly what they shut the government down for, lo those weeks ago, ted cruz and mike lee and the house republicans should do the same thing to a delay bill. attach the defund. now it's not a question of shutting down the government. now it's not a question of the debt ceiling. they can't get it up and running. they have to pass a delay bill. >> there is almost an open warfare against good conservatives. in utah they are going to primary mike lee. if they do -- >> oh! >> you didn't hear? >> no. >> establishment guys are targeting tea party members. >> the one thing you are supposed to depend on the establishment as we refer to it they are supposed to not primary
10:32 pm
our own guys. usually they are upset about the establishment type and the party apparatus says, no, no don't waste timen on this. we'll keep them. >> if they do though that to mike lee, i will get my buses full of people and go to utah. >> are you sure? >> 100%. >> who? do you have names? >> i will tell you off air. >> i want americans to know on air. >> this is the republican party in utah. the establishment republican party. >> i'm worried about our side, conservatives primarying incumbent republicans. you don't primary the good ones. >> some deserve to be. >> true. >> john mccain. i'd primary him. >> right now, i might not even primary marco rubio. that shows you how serious i am. >> marco rubio has been great on this. >> too late. >> there are people who need to go. >> we should talk about mary landrieu.
10:33 pm
>> mark pryor. >> we need to take montana and west virginia. republicans, conservatives, rinos. stop worrying about purifying us. take the senate first. >> congrats on the book. >> thank you. >> coming up -- >> earlier today the president sealed a deal on health care signing the bill into into law and forever changing the united states of america. to break it down it means higher taxes and lower quality medical care for you and your family. >> our predictions from years ago about obama care have come to pass. that's not all we were right b about. when we come back, we'll show you how right we were. and later the obama care operator who lost her job because she talked to me on my radio show. when we come back, we have good news. she gets the last laugh. and we always want to hear from you. join our companion site, share your thoughts on the show and more or on twitter. on twit. my asthma's under control.

on this program we have exposed the devastate impacts obama care would have on you and your family. we begin a week long series called you were warned and we'll remind you of the cautionary tales told on this program before this train wreck was implemented. for example. earlier today the president sealed a deal on health care signing the bill into law and changing the united states of america. now to break it down it means higher taxes and lower quality of medical care for you an your family. america has some of the top health care and top medical technology available in the world today. what makes it great? >> the current health care system is based on choice. we need a system where americans can choose the health care they want as they can choose to buy one automobile versus another.
10:39 pm
>> congress has decided to throw another choice into the mix -- a cheaper government-run, quote, public option, for insurance coverage. don't worry. >> if you like the plan you have, you can keep it. if you like the doctor you have, you can deep your doctor, too. >> when prove says you get to keep the health care you have, he's being completely disingenuous. millions of people will lose their health insurance in favor of the government insurance. >> hate to say we told you so. joining me with reaction is the man whose alarming prediction has become a reality. from the fox news medical a team. good to see you all. i said it, you said it. a few of us got it. all the promises aren't true. >> if we look better than we did
10:40 pm
four years ago it's no thanks to obama care. >> i have aged. >> you look great. better. >> you told me i was too fat. as a doctor. >> you worked out and use used exercise. that's the way to go. health care is in trouble. what obama care got wrong is understanding we are talk thing about the health care needs of the people of the u.s., not the health insurance needs. it is a different thing. we were all in trouble to begin with. too many people have it. i'm busy struggling with electronic health records. i can't see all these people. they are going to pay us less. >> i just mentioned the stories. people paying 10,000 more a year, 1800, millionles. we have millions of americans kicked off the plans. the very heart of the promises the president made. doesn't the president have explaining to do to the american people that his core promises are broken? >> he is explaining. let me do some for you. the people getting kicked off
10:41 pm
insurance plans didn't have real health insurance. >> yes, they did. >> they had faux insurance. it was all -- >> stop. the president said if you like your plan you keep it. people like it and they are being kicked off. >> they don't know if they like it because they haven't used it. >> they like it! >> when they try it's like -- >> there is a reason the liberal reduce has taken shape. they have to justify a fact that one of the essential promises made is completely false. to your prediction it is a lie. the fact that if you like your doctor, keep it. why kick off these people based on obama care regulations from these predatory insurance plans? they are cheap plans that mostly young people buy. >> they need young people in tex changes. >> young people like catastrophic insurance. >> absolutely. it's cheaper. the idea is to rope in young people to pay for older who people who are sick. the biggest lie here or
10:42 pm
disingenuous statement. >> lie. >> is the idea that you can keep your doctor. you can't. obama care insurance has narrow networks your hospital and doctor aren't participating in. >> i'm sorry, sean. >> one more thing. if the government wants to address those who need health care they could have built a bridge or fought a war. >> ten seconds. >> imagine buying a gym membership, coming and saying you can't use the weights, machines. >> if that's the membership you bought, yes. >> that's the health insurance they were selling. it wasn't real. >> coming up next, thank you all. dr. charles krauthammer is here to weigh in on a college classmate of michelle obama is one of the top executives that built the website. and by the way, that was a no-bid contract? coincidence, or is there a scandal brewing here.

welcome back to welcome back to "hannity." it is another example of crony capitalism and it has to do with the obama care website and michelle obama. according to a report in the daily call, quote, first lady michelle obama and her princeton classmate whose company received the no-bid contract to build the health obama care website were both members of a black student organization that caused a tense scene on campus by inviing a plo leader who advocated for terrorism.

michelle obama '85 and her classmate tony towns whitly from cgi federal were both students at the university when the group's organization of black university i and the third world center engaged in a confrontation with jewish students on campus. here with that story and author of "things that matter" number one on as we speak is dr. charles krauthammer. congratulations on what is a fantastic book. i have enjoyed every page. >> thanks, sean. i appreciate that. >> by the way, i love the fact that you gave a speech one day and told the story about me and all the years we had known each other. go ahead. you can mock me on national tv. >> i don't mock you. you know, i'm always surprised that you are upset by that. >> i am. >> it's the most charming story. you know i told it again on the special that brett baier did. i said sean doesn't really like it but it is a wonderful story.
10:49 pm
it just shows. i like it because it shows how i haven't made this fact that i'm in a wheelchair sort of the center of my life. and the fact that you weren't aware of it, i thought was lovely. it was a way to compliment you. >> listen. it's a friendly story that we have between the two of us. the story was inspiring. the special was fantastic. it reminds us that think we have problems, everybody has problems. some people are struggling with incredible things and your ability to overcome, i found inspiring. thank you. >> one of the things i realized is having spent seven years in medicine and three years in hospital medicine which is a sea of suffering and i write about this in the introduction gives you an appreciation of what real suffering is. i come to the conclusion that everybody has their cross to bear. everybody knows a family member. the only difference is in some people you can see it. in some people you can't. that's the only thing that distinguishes us.

>> those that don't know, you are a trained psychiatrist. if you ever start analyzing some of the on-air personalities on tv, i think we are all in trouble. really. >> actually, you should think of me, sean, as a psychiatrist in remission. doing very well. haven't had a relapse in 25 years. >> that's like a congressman saying former, ex, i'm in rehab now. >> right. >> what do you make of this story? this was a no-bid contract, a lot of money beyond the normal procedures. then we have the connection to
10:51 pm
michelle obama, fairly radical connection. what's your reaction? >> look, i don't want to judge who was doing what with this on the basis of this. it is clear one of the reasons the rollout is a disaster is because the whole damn thing was done with no bid. when you think about that in the context of the federal government, think of solyndra, the entire boondog gle with the green energy economy that obama care tried to create out of nothing with federal money. it is an intrinsic part of the great entitlement state that thinks it can do anything on its own, take over a sixth of the economy with health care. create out of nothing a green economy at a time when history and the market have said it's not ready. it is always true that it will be riddled with cronyism because
10:52 pm
it is all the decisions made not on the basis of the market but on the basis of what. that's where the corruption sets in. >> everything that was told to the american people as the president sold this, everything -- i can't think of one thing that's not -- it's all turned out not true. the average family isn't saving $2500 a year. people aren't keeping their plan. they were told if they liked it they could keep it. the cost is not $900 billion. everything the roll out would be easy. nothing is true. what is the political fallout and what should republicans do for the consumers experiencing heartache? >> when the other guy is committing suicide, get out of the way. i have always thought the reality of obama care which you saw coming, i saw coming, the whole conservative movement saw coming, and talked about it and
10:53 pm
wrote about it for five years now, it is all coming true. the facts speak much stronger than anything. this could be a setback for the entitlement state and the arrogant liberal ideas that could set them back for a decade. and they know it, which is why they are terrified. >> i agree with that. and for the sake of america, i hope it gets stopped. because it's going to wreak a lot of havoc and suffering. charles, congratulations on the book. loved it, loved the special. and thanks for being with us. >> pleasure. >> coming up next, a heart warming update for you. a story we brought to you last week about the obama care operator who was fired after i called her on my radio show. and we're going to explain all of it right after the break. we have a good ending to the story to share with you. . could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. mmmhmmm...everybody knows that.

11:00 pm
it meant a lot to us. as always, thank you for being with us. start each and every morning 5:00 to 9:00, fox and friends right here on the fox news channel. see you back here tomorrow night. this is a fox news alert. it is official. the obama administration just announcing it is granting a six week extension until march 31st for americans to sign up for obama care and avoid penalties. now, the extension was expected since h.h.s. said they planned to do it as technical problems continue to plague the web site. also tonight, many young americans, they are laughing at obama care. so what makes you think they would buy insurance on the exchanges if they are busy laughing at it and, if they don't, you tell me, where are we going to get the money? >> we're probably just overloaded with traffic, millions of americans are visiting, which is great news. unfortunately, the site wa
